Any one else feeling much younger than they are !! Strong in mind and body?

I am 52 , I look 52 but I feel 32 !
The gym is my church AND my asylum
My mission in life is Just to stay fit healthy and toned until I’m a hundred! And annoy my kids , help others to achieve their goals and enjoy life
If you want it you will find a way
If you don’t you will find an excuse!

    Feel sad for you. The ability to move is a gift.

    Totally agree, OP. I'm 68 and "episodically" in the gym ... a few months on, a few months off. When I am in a regular lifting/intervals groove like I am now, I feel invincible. I don't know if I will (or even want to) make it to 100, but however long I am here, I want to maintain my independence & sufficient physical stamina to get through the inevitable set-backs that happen to everyone. I had a test-run last fall when I suffered a major bleed and was hospitalized twice, then had to come back from severe anemia over a few months. If I had been debilitated prior to that, it would have been very bad and probably the beginning of a steady down-hill course.

    Approaching 40 and really feel closer to 30. I’m in much better shape than when I was younger and have a new found level of comfort in my own skin that I didn’t have before. Fabulous 40 here I come!

    68 here. Feel like in my 40s. Get my age guessed at early 50 consistently.

    I'm 64, look 64, feel 64 and happen to be pretty darn fit for a 64-year old dude. It's the other people my age, most of them look and feel older. Can't help them, have my hands full with myself.

    I’m 61 but on most of my adventure travel trips people think I’m 45 probably because I outhike most on the trip. I don’t have any physical issues and I am not on ant medications which I believe is a big contributing factor. I take vitamins and workout every day. It takes me longer to lose weight but I am lucky to have good genes so I will probably always look much younger than my age. I do believe having a positive outlook on life and enjoying life to the fullest is a big factor.

    I'm packing up for a little trip with my smurf coloured race bike now. Not a long trip as I have a knee injury that disagrees with this, but probably about 50km outside of town. Basically just for geocaching, maybe seeing some nice nature (here? rather not) and for a bit of fresh air.
